Could you love a machine, and could it ever love you back?

What is love in the age of machines, sex toys, care robots, and screen addictions? It’s time for another existential conversation in the Nook.

The relationships you have with your devices are not the same as what you have with your family, friends, or lovers. But what are they like then? Can we give it a name? To what degree can you connect with technology in a meaningful way, and to what degree can it do the same with you? How happy are you to spend most of your time connecting with or through technology, instead of directly with your fellow humans? And what will this be like in the future?

Let’s explore the potential (and boundaries) of machines for love, romance, and sex.


Existential Tuesdays are small bi-weekly discussions in the Nook of the TUD Library. Practice your critical thinking skills, learn to see the world from different perspectives, and hang out with your fellow deep thinkers in Delft.
